Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) review

 

The Apple watch that does it all

So comfortable for all-day wear ; 4G works wonders with Apple Music and iMessage ; Superb display and scratch/dent resistance ; Battery life impressive even after a hard day’s use ; No added cost to phone or data plan

Even more expensive in cellular form ; Can’t handoff calls from Watch to iPhone ; Only on Airtel and Jio networks yet

Still expensive but still the best fitness tracker and overall smart wearable.

Apple Watch 3 review: Three months on, I’m wondering if I have really used the best smartwatch well

 

Apple Watch 3 is clearly the best smartwatch you can buy now. But are you really using a smartwatch this powerful to its full capabilities? I guess not.

Apple Watch Series 3

 

Apple Watch Series 3 review: Apple's LTE-enabled smartwatch is the most fully-featured on the market, but LTE isn't going to be for everyone.

Snappier performance ; Improved exercise tracking ; Super-bright and clear display ; Decent battery life (when not reliant on LTE) ; watchOS 4 improvements ; Apple Pay is still super useful

LTE has a big impact on battery life ; Needs more dedicated watch apps to make use of LTE ; Need to wait for Apple Music streaming ; Siri doesn't always work ; No LTE roaming

Battery life is rated the same as the Apple Watch Series 2, which Apple states is 18 hours. This applies for both the cellular and non-cellular options.

Apple Watch Series 3 review: A good watch, a so-so phone replacement

 

All told, the Apple Watch Series 3 feels like two separate devices. When it's used as a traditional smartwatch — by which I mean it's connected to, and in range of a phone — it's the best wearable Apple has ever made. Performance is much improved,...

Improved performance ; Great battery life when connected to a phone ; Valuable new fitness features ; Siri feels more useful

iPhone still needs to be on to receive texts ; Lousy battery life on LTE ; Call quality can vary ; Apple Music streaming not ready yet

Apple Watch Series 3 review

 

The Apple Watch Series 3 is the best smartwatch you can buy -- and oh so close to replacing your phone.

Makes calls from your wrist ; Voice control is excellent ; A joy to use ; Masses of personalization options ; Superb fitness tracking ability

Third-party app support is lacking ; Expensive ; Speaker is quiet

The one major new feature to the Apple Watch Series 3 — cellular connectivity — isn’t a reason to buy it, at least, not yet. But Apple’s Watch was already the best smartwatch you could buy, and the strong performance and sensible software enhancements...

Apple Watch Series 3 review: now with cellular, it’s still the smartwatch to beat

 

The Apple Watch enters its third generation with little to prove

Leaves rivals floundering ; Cellular a worthy addition ; Plenty of design options ; Great for general fitness

We want even more battery life ; Restricted network choice

Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE review: missed connections

 

You should still call me on my cellphone

Option for LTE ; Faster processor ; watchOS 4 (not specific to this hardware)

Cellular connectivity problems ; Apple Music streaming not working yet ; Unreliable Siri ; Notable battery drain with LTE

Apple Watch Series 3

 

Apple adds cellular connectivity and doubles down on fitness features with the Watch Series 3, but it comes at a price.

Built-in cellular connectivity. Improved heart rate monitoring. Faster processor. Clear call quality. New band and case options.

Expensive. LTE drains battery rapidly.

Bottom Line: Apple adds cellular connectivity and doubles down on fitness features with the Watch Series 3, but it comes at a price.

Review: Apple Watch Series 3

 

Now that it has LTE built in, it finally makes good on its promise to save you from your phone.

An always-on LTE connection totally changes what you can do with a Watch. It's an impressive fitness tracker. Believe it or not, Siri's pretty great.

The battery lasts a day in the best case---and often less. The Watch's interface still takes too long to figure out.
